97. It's time to be thankful

Technically, I've already had my share of Thanksgiving (minus the turkey). But you know I am totally up for more pumpkin pie, or in my case the pumpkin bread I plan on making this weekend. I'm kind of on a baking spree, my famous choco-chip cookies and this Nutella swirl pound cake both happened out of boredom. More on that in a minute. In honour of the American Thanksgiving, I'm participating in this week's FBFF. Here are just some, because I probably can't remember everything, that I am thankful for in my life.

  • Being really excited to bake all kinds of Christmas goodies
  • Having some of the best friends in the world
  • The good-morning text I get when I arrive at work from a best friend
  • Knowing there's only a month til she gets home and we can hang again!

  • Having wonderful readers for my blog that I didn't think would last
  • The courage to stand up to people who treat me unfairly
  • Communication in all forms, so I can stay connected to my family

  • The ability to laugh at myself when I'm being my most ridiculous
  • Still loving many things I did when I was little
Yeah I could go on. I keep thinking of new things so I may end up editing this as the day goes on. But for now there's a paper that needs an entirely new section and has a lot more editing left to be done. So for now, I hope you're all having a great Friday and have an awesome weekend!

Til next time!
